A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Fishing the dish

Toilet’s broke … the john
Packed here … to … beyond
What’s down … there
That’s not … up … here?
Need … to fish … the dish
But how? … can’t swish!
Much … debris … squished!
After hours … no more flowers
Duty calls … above ‘n beyond!
Dust to dawn … need a wand!
Thank you … for doing what
Needs … to … be … done
And for cleaning … around
When the object … was found.

I need to say thank you to the nurses at the secure unit where Mother lives. So many above and beyond moments. Recently had an “episode”. Now may I say, ordinarily just closing a door for a night would be fine if the user was alert and in their right mind, but Alzheimer’s people improvise, if you get my drift!
